101 Ways to Go Zero Waste

We all know how important it is to reduce our environmental footprint, but it can be daunting to know where to begin. Enter Kathryn Kellogg, who can fit all her trash from the past two years into a 16-ounce mason jar. How? She starts by saying “ no ” to straws and grocery bags, and “ yes ” to a reusable water bottle and compostable dish scrubbers.

In 101 Ways to Go Zero Waste, Kellogg shares these tips and more, along with DIY recipes for beauty and home; advice for responsible consumption and making better choices for home goods, fashion, and the office; and even secrets for how to go waste free at the airport. “ It ’ s not about perfection, ” she says. “ It ’ s about making better choices. ”

This is a ractical, friendly blueprint of realistic lifestyle changes for anyone who wants to reduce their waste.

unfortunately, as with a ot of sustainable living/zero waste books, the uthor is very much speaking from a position of privilege, and does n't always acknowledge that.

" just go down to your local tortilleria " is n't very practical advice for someone who lives in the uburbs of new england.

This book lost me at something along the line " oh well fuck the environment, my health is more important ".

It should n't be the reader 's job to fact-check your nonfiction book.

This eview was originally published on my websit, LaurenHannah.net.101 Ways to Go Zero Waste is marketed as ‘ an accessible guide to personal waste reduction ’, and I couldn ’ t have described it better myself.

101 Ways is everything I was hoping Zero Waste Home to be: positive, simple, and accessible — and including a lot of ( not-so-fun) facts backed up by science.I ’ ve read quite a few ooks and blogs about plastic reduction and zero waste, and I was pleasantly surprised that I actually learned some new things from this book.Beside inspiring me to make my next zero waste swap, it also reawakened my motivation to pick up litter off the street every time I walk my dog, knowing now that aluminium cans are infinitely recyclable without any loss of quality.

Knowing my snotty tissues can go into the compost makes me feel much better every time I have to blow my nose.
